Google is raising expectations for the Game Developers Conference, and is sending today a series of invitations to a GDC keynote address at the Moscone Center in San Francisco on March 19th.
The invitation includes a .gif image of a corridor with a white light at the end of it that becomes blinding before displaying the date of the speech and the slogan "Gather around you".
"Everything will be revealed on Google Keynote," promises the invitation. "10 am on March 19th, 2019. Find us at Moscone South, San Francisco."
In terms of what might be revealed, Google would work for some time on the technology of streaming games. A little over a year ago, it was said that he was working on Yeti, a project code, streaming service that would work on either Chromecast devices or with a new Google console. It was later reported that Google had organized meetings at GDC 2018 and E3 2018 levels with various game companies and developers to generate support for the platform (including through an acquisition).
Last fall, Google tested its streaming technology with Project Stream, a beta version that allowed participants to play Assassin's Creed Odyssey in a Google Chrome browser. The test ended earlier this year and visitors to the Project Stream website are now invited to give their email address to receive technology news and promotions.
